[texts]ERIC ED378540: Comprehension/Schema Theory: A Practical Application. AVKO "Great Idea" Reprint Series No. 633. - ERIC
Until researchers achieve a breakthrough on comprehending what comprehending is all about, teachers need help on how to help students comprehend what they are reading. According to schema theory, students must be able to pronounce almost all key words and have schemata previously instantiated (know the meanings of almost all key words) in order to comprehend a passage. A common solution is to pre-teach key words, which works well for good students who wait patiently, but does not work well for s...
